"EVERY FAMILY HAS A DIFFERENT CARBON FOOTPRINT"
Swiftboating defined: “The disclosure of truths that are, er, inconvenient for Democrats.” Sounds about right; the swiftboating of Al Gore sure fits that definition. Tennessee’s Bob Krumm discloses this truth:
Four and a half years ago Al Gore bought a large home and made it larger, but did very little to reduce his own energy consumption. Instead, he spent the same time telling you how to reduce yours.
And from Jim Treacher:
It’s great that he’s using solar panels and all that, but notice he’s not disputing how huge his electric bill still is. What the hell is he doing in there? Is he a Terminator from the future and requires constant recharging? (That would explain pretty much everything.)
This is typical liberal behavior of course. John Edwards talks of two Americas yet lives in a house roughly the size of one of them. Now we have Al Gore sucking up enough energy for a small hospital.
The Gore camp is on the offensive over this issue with statements such as “I think what you’re seeing here is the last gasp of the global warming skeptics...” or my personal favorite; “the bottom line is that every family has a different carbon footprint. And what Vice President Gore has asked is for families to calculate that footprint and take steps to reduce and offset it."
Nice of him to ask. Biff Henderson in NYC sends a chilling reply:
"So, Al Gore’s global warming film wins an Academy Award? Well, Al can kiss my frozen ass!"
